Yes, I've made things in trigger.  It's a good hard wearing fabric that works well for pants, surcoats and shield covers.  It isn't hard to work with (though cutting through more than 4 layers can be a workout for your hands) and it's a mainstay in Several groups because of that and the fact you can find it almost anywhere.

And for SCA "legal", well they just like more/better research, and they use the same materials as the rest of us with a leaning for the natural fibers (linen, wool, silk, hemp and cotton) rather than the shedding of the polyester sheep (wry smile) that most of us can find in the dollar bins.

as an example this

is made from trigger.  As is the blue tunic in this shot
